Trump Secures 3rd Nobel Peace Prize Nomination, Biden Picks Up His First

Democratic nominee Joe Biden has been formally nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize, joining President Trump who recently received his third nomination.

As the Hill reports, any national politician can nominate someone for the prize and British Parliament member Chris Bryant did just that when he nominated Biden.

Citing his peaceful oration, Bryant said Biden is encouraging peace in the U.S.

“When others have resorted to violent solutions, [Biden] has argued that the best force is the force of argument,” Bryant said. “Because guns can stop a heart but well-placed words can change many hearts, and many hearts can change a world.”

Conversely, Norwegian Parliament member Christian Tybring-Gjedde said it was Trump that should win the Nobel Peace Prize for his peace efforts in the Middle East.

“For his merit, I think he has done more trying to create peace between nations than most other peace prize nominees,” said Tybring-Gjedde, who also nominated Trump in 2018.

As the Washington Examiner reports, Australian law professor David Flint followed up the nomination by also nominating Trump for his “Trump Doctrine.”

Referencing the latest peace deal between Israel and the United Arab Emirates, Flint said of Trump: “He went ahead and negotiated against all advice, but he did it with common sense. He negotiated directly with the Arab states concerned and Israel and brought them together.”

“What he has done with the Trump Doctrine is that he has decided that he would no longer have America involved in endless wars, wars which achieve nothing but the killing of thousands of young Americans,” he continued.

“So he’s reducing America’s tendency to get involved in any and every war,” Flint added. “The states are lining up, Arab and Middle Eastern, to join that network of peace which will dominate the Middle East.”

And: “He is really producing peace in the world in a way in which none of his predecessors did, and he fully deserves the Nobel Peace Prize.”

“He’s guided by two things, which seem to be absent from so many politicians. He has firstly common sense and he’s only guided by national interest. And, therefore, in our circumstances an interest in the Western alliance,” Flinton concluded.

Donald Trump Jr. celebrated his father’s third endorsement, suggesting it could be a record.

“Wow,” he wrote. “Now that’s 3 Nobel nominations. Is that record? This one for pulling us out of endless wars, a huge deal that no one else in the DC bubble would have had the guts to do.”

“You know they’ll still give it to antifa or something ridiculous but cool none the less,” he added.

The Washington Examiner reports:

Trump has already been nominated twice for the 2021 Nobel Peace Prize, including by a Norwegian member of Parliament for the Middle East peace deal and by a member of the Swedish Parliament for normalizing relations between Serbia and Kosovo.
